2015 Kia Sorento Upgraded Interior Revealed, Features New Diesel and Petrol Engine Blocks

Details of the 2015 Kia Sorento were recently revealed at the vehicle‘s public unveiling in South Korea. The interior of the third generation Sorento is unlike anything that we have seen before. The designers at Kia have taken ergonomics to the next level, and it is quite evident even to the untrained eye.

The seven-seat layout on the upcoming Sorento is more spacious than its predecessors while a large touch screen occupies a massive part of the dash. The entry model however gets a smaller monochrome display.

Features such as climate control and upright media vents are standard on all variants of the Sorento, although, the controls are placed separately on the different variants. Kia is offering two central consoles on the 2015 Sorento, namely a basic console with analogue meters with a central trip display and a large digital information screen.

The console sits pretty behind the latest three-spoke steering wheel while some of the basic features include Parking Brake, push button start, sliding panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats and second row of seats.

The highlight of the 2015 Kia Sorento is the higher quality parts that this vehicle is composed out of. Kia has introduced a host of safety parameters including adaptive cruise control, front collision warning, blind spot detection, lane departure warning, and rear cross traffic alert, lane change assist and information display options.

Kia claims that the South Korean variant of the upcoming Sorento features a range of turbocharged engine blocks including 2.0 liter and 2.2-liter options. The 2.2-liter is an updated version of Kia’s current flagship product and is to be offered alongside a petrol variant.

Kia plans on introducing a range of petrol engine variants including four-cylinder 2.4-liter petrol, which will be available alongside their current generation 3.3-liter and 3.6-liter engine blocks. Kia’s plan for the export market is yet to be ascertained. Stay tuned for more!
